    WVU lock

    Same high school and host family as Konate (WVU fans), and practically lives on campus. Brother just moved to WV too.

    I'm sure he's enjoying the UK attention though.

    Laughing ok, you'll see

    wvu lock, and we're final four contenders every year from now until huggs retires

    and UK has already offered.

    Rivals needs to update their rankings. No way hes outside the top 20. He's #19 on 247 now.

    Well, that’s that the thing though. Good in paint, still pretty raw. Doesn’t look as good as Patrick Patterson did at same stage. Still very solid. Would work well at UK. Probably two year player.

    as of right now UK has not offered (not sure where you got your info)
    Cal likes to do that in person so i would bet he gets that offer from UK he has been wanting on his visit

    Still isn’t impressive regarding the talent disparity.

    we have learned that nothing is a lock
    if he does not pick UK then i hope it is WVU
    i have a lot of friends that are WVU fans, plus i really like Huggins

    Saw Patterson play a lot at Huntington. Oscar is a lot bigger, longer (7'5 wingspan), and just an absolute beast in the paint. His motor is on a diff level than a guy like Pat's was.

    Definitely still raw offensively though.

    Huggs is basically a member of his family at this point, and everybody in his circle are WVU fans. It would probably be a friendship ender for Huggs and Cal if UK stole this kid. lol

    Dont see any way he ends up anywhere other than morgantown.

    You had the most highly touted class in the last 25-30 years and lost to Frank Kaminsky.

    Also, beat a decent Louisville team by single digits that year. Weird.

    it happens
    UL had the number 1 player in the country and could not get past the first weekend
    i think UL was also the overall #1 seed

    all those so called great teams Pitino had at UL and he managed to have more NIT's then FF's

    Good finisher for sure. Just lacks finesse and wouldn't be confident of him scoring on much other than a dunk, at least from what I've seen. I don't follow recruiting much, only thing I've read indicates WVU probably is leader. Still, it's Calipari and just him being involved will make it close.

    Thing about Oscar (from what Ive been told) is he's not even really a basketball "fan". Don't think names like Kentucky and Calipari mean anything to him. Huggs has been on him since the day he got to the US. Same host family that brought Konate to him. Obviously Oscar is much more highly recruited than Sags was, so that makes it a little different.

    We'll see...

    No, top ten... but not #1. Still sucked enough to go undrafted though. Laughing

    Was gonna say, can’t find any source of him being number 1. Nor should he have been. Overrated as they come.

    Meh, Scotty Hopson was top 5 in the same class. He was highly overrated himself.

    thanks i just looked that up
    so i was mistaken he was the #2 player from at least one service (albeit the worst source for player rankings)

    while i was looking him up i looked at the 2007 class
    man that class was loaded

    The confusion was probably from Brandon Jennings who went overseas so technically making Samardo the number one player for college basketball

    247 that has "all-time recruit" rankings by school. According to 247..

    Skal Labissiere is the 3rd best Kentucky recruit since 2000...Nerlens Noel is #1..Anthony Davis #2...Karl Anthony Towns comes in at #9. I think it's time they admit they are doing something wrong...

    https://247sports.com/college/kentucky/Sport/Basketball/AllTimeRecruits

    fwiw...Samardo Samuels would be the best recruit at Louisville in 18 years.
